Welcome

GW Campus - Fall

The Office of Risk Management and Insurance (Risk Management) manages risk associated with teaching, research and support operations.

Our staff work to identify and analyze three key risk exposures:

  1. Liability for bodily injury and property damage;
  2. Physical damage to the university’s property; and
  3. Liability for causing others to suffer financial loss.

We manage risk in collaboration with several university departments. You can help us by actively supporting risk management programs, policies, and procedures.

Risk Management also analyzes the costs involved with each risk and resulting liability. Our services include:

  • Internal consulting services for departmental staff on preventing and controlling risks, including risk assessments and policy development for projects, activities, and operational liability exposures
  • Workers’ compensation, auto liability, general liability, professional liability, and property claims administration
  • Marketing, purchasing, and administration of property, excess general liability and other miscellaneous insurance policies and bonds
  • Review of university contracts and leases for insurance requirements and indemnification language
  • Employee and supervisory training on risk related topics, including loss control and workers’ compensation
  • Coordination of modified duty assignments for injured workers and physical rehabilitation programs for injured workers
